A sergeant in the uniformed division of the Secret Service was early Saturday after he allegedly solicited sex from an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute. 

Uniformed Secret Service Sgt. Michael Wright was arrested about 12:50 a.m. Saturday near 11th and K streets NW.
D.C. police say they were running a prostitution sting there. Investigators say Sgt. Wright was in uniform when he pulled up in a marked Secret Service vehicle around 12:50 a.m.
Wright asked one of the undercover officers about what she would charge for a sex act, police said. She quoted him a price between $50 to $100, depending on the nature of the act; the officer allegedly claimed to have only $20.
The undercover Metro police officer told him to wait around the corner, which is the point at which other Metro officers appeared to arrest the man.
“No matter, you know, who you are, or what job or title that you have, you know, us with the Metropolitan Police Department are out doing our job,” said Lt. Brian Christian, MPD.
The Washington Post reports that the officer was cited for soliciting a prostitute and released. 
The Secret Service confirms that one of their officers has been arrested but will not discuss the charges, saying only that the case has been turned over to internal affairs and the employee is on administrative leave. 
District resident Grace Lee responds, “There’s definitely going to be a need for re-evaluation of some of their officers, especially with the new administration coming in and with D.C. sort of being a focal point for all of that — that’s amazing.”
